The TV star, 50, is mum to Billy, 18, Charlie, 16, Rafferty, 14, and Laurie, 12, with her husband of 19, Graham Swift.

Mum: Sarah Beeny has revealed she still wants more children after having four sons Billy, 18, Charlie, 16, Rafferty, 14 and Laurie, 12, with husband of 19, Graham Swift
Speaking to Richard Eden of the Daily Mail, Sarah joked that Graham told her if she wanted to add to their brood it would have to be with another man.
“I kind of wanted to have more kids, but Graham said I should have them with my next husband,” Sarah said.
“And I didn’t think I’d find another husband with four kids, so I thought, ‘Oh, I’ll stay with you then. I wanted to have six, really.
The TV presenter and property expert, 50, revealed last month that she had been diagnosed with breast cancer and had since undergone at least chemotherapy.

Sarah revealed her diagnosis in an interview with The Telegraph, revealing that she always suspected she would be diagnosed with the disease after her mother Ann died of cancer aged 39 while Sarah never was only 10 years old.
Sarah, who presents shows including Help! Sarah Beeny’s My House Is Falling Down and New Life In The Country were diagnosed after finding a lump that led to a biopsy.
He was told the cancer had not spread and “there is an 80% chance of recovery”.
The star’s mother had breast cancer that spread to her brain, and she died aged 39, when Beeny was 10.
Diagnosis: Last month Sarah revealed she had enlisted the help of her four sons to cut her hair short, after being diagnosed with breast cancer and starting chemotherapy.
Sarah admitted she had “a little depression” in the consultation room”, but explained to the nurse: “You don’t understand. I waited 40 years to hear those words. I knew I was going to hear it one day.
A few days after starting chemotherapy, she decided to enlist her four sons to help her cut her hair short.
She admitted that Billy, 18, Charlie, 16, Rafferty, 14 and Laurie, 12, “will not be celebrity hairdressers” after the uneven cut.
‘I was really, really sad before. I think because losing your hair is so real: before that you can kind of pretend it’s not happening,’ she added of the moment hinge.

She documented the moment in an Instagram post, writing: ‘Little pile of not so good hair on the way to @officiallittleprincesstrust – my trainee hairdressers cut my hair Friday night – getting a head start after the first chemotherapy treatment for breast cancer on Friday – the exclusive club you’d rather not be a member of!’
Sarah added in her interview that although she wasn’t told her own mother’s cancer was terminal, she was candid about her own diagnosis with her boys.
“I’m lucky because I live in a family where we all talk,” she explained. “They just said, ‘Will you be honest? And I said, “I promise you I’m going to be here for a long time yet. It’s going to be a little tough. But I promise I won’t lie.” says that.’
Charitable: Sarah said she was ‘getting a head start’ on the disease by cutting her hair and donating it to a charity that provides free wigs to children with cancer
Despite her diagnosis, Sarah said she will continue to work and is currently focusing on a new Channel 4 series and book which she plans to publish later this year.
Sarah and her family moved from their London home in March to a seven-bedroom house in Somerset, having bought a 220-acre former farm in 2018.
The family made the move permanent after documenting the purchase and restoration of the farmhouse on Sarah Beeny’s Channel 4 series New Life In The Country.
In 2010, Sarah also featured her family in the series Beeny’s Restoration Nightmare, which documented her and Graham’s renovation of Rise Hall, a Grade II listed stately home in Rise, East Yorkshire.
They transformed the stately home into a family home and wedding venue and sold the property in 2019.

Sarah’s four sons, who have formed a band, recently dedicated a song to her, with the proud mum taking to Instagram on Mother’s Day to share the song with fans.
The four boys named their group Entitled Sons, a cheeky reference to their privileged upbringing.
The song, titled Unconditional, sees the real estate mogul’s face on the cover “scary” merged with that of his son Charlie.
A delighted Sarah was moved by their dedication, made with the help of their Father.
